|The great umbrella covering the earth.
A tower is built in the center, a mass of machinery that props it up.
As one would expect, the villages below get no sun, and are tormented by leaks called "rain."
But the people do not question.
For it is commonplace.
It means nothing.
It is simply "law."
The umbrella deceived the sun, and the sky was crying
And the town, blind, suspects nothing
You faced the umbrella and spit at it,
It sank into the rain, and we were left silent
We didn't hear anyone,
But he grasped the rain
He took my hand, and toward the umbrella...
Together, we made a promise:
"We'll go see that sky we've only seen in storybooks..."
And in that moment, the rain seemed to go away,
And our sadnesses, too, were forgotten
Struggling together through recurring rain, the two reached the umbrella tower.
The great double doors would hardly budge, but the couple would not be rejected.
Not everyone can enter.
Key or no, it seems it would mean nothing.
On the other side of that door,
As we head somewhere up a crumbling spiral staircase,
We're stained black among the dripping rain's echo
And I, about to cry, was softly comforted,
For you, ever so gentle, took my hand
Chasing after a white shadow,
It ran ahead past a row of cages
But there's no time to look for reason...
Nor any desire
My hands trembling, you were there to support them
And with such aid, I could only watch out for you
Melted into the darkness, the gears laugh,
But, look; a gentle breeze brushes your cheek
"The wind is blowing..."
The girl said.
The boy quietly acknowledged her.
Nothing could stop their feet.
It seemed they had come far, yet it seemed as if they had only just begun running.
The two were hopelessly small. No one found any trace of them.
No one found any trace of them.
Soon we could chase the white shadow no more,
And though seeming very sad, it disappeared
Though smelling of rust and stained of black,
At last, the colors began to brighten
It seemed as if we could hear a voice from somewhere,
Perhaps our imagination, perhaps we'd just forgot
And lying at the end of the spiral staircase
Was but a very small door
Covered with dust, waiting all along
There... it seemed we saw perhaps everything
Flowers blooming in every color, and a deep blue sky
In this captivating world, just the two of us...
I don't need anything more
And the sky that had been but locked in storybooks;
So returning it to its place might not be forgotten,
You gave me a quickly-made bouquet,
And as we laughed, I leant on your shoulder
At the end of the world, the umbrella is raised
And as long as there's such a world, all will be fine
It won't be sad, not when I'm by your side...
On top of the umbrella where flowers bloomed,
with faces filled with joy,
a pair sleeps softly together...
IF YOU CAN PROVIDE ANY LYRICS I DON'T HAVE PLEASE SAY SO
If you actually stumble across this blog, just ignore it. I'm using it as a more convenient way to store hard copies of my song lyrics instead of a giant text document.
So carry on.
NECESSARY(?) DISCLAIMER: Most of these lyrics are from vgperson anyway. Or from determined Google searches.
And yes this is the exact color of Karkat's text. One day I will find lyrics to the Nic Cage song. One day.
